High SchoolSa THE RECORD. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19. 1964 PASSAIC S-19 mum r By Daw PVUanandro Writer Hawthorne's victory over RidgefieM Park in Saturday's New Jersey State InterscboUs-tic Athletic Association Group 2, Sectioa 1 football playoffs was best described by Bear coach Tom DeMaio, who called the t-7 victory "a classic case of gutting it out" DeMaio could have been describing the winning drive, in which Hawthorne scored on Mike White's two-yard ran and on a weB-execated Bill Sansone-to-Brad Huntington conversion pass. But the Bears' last defensive series was a classic example of the defense Hawthorne has played all season. The Scarlets reached the Bear 3C after two Dave Porcaro-to-Brian Camming passes and faced a second-and-10 with one minute left First, Hawthorne junior cornerback Tim Martin tipped away a potential touchdown pass to Barry Williams at the 15; then on third down, Scott Barna tripped Porcaro from behind with help from Dong Meneve; finally, Sansone mtercepted a Porcaro pass to pot the game away. "We moved Timmy in for the Midland Park game for Jim SUnsfield mononucleosis! and he's done the job," says DeMaio. The whole Second Look defense was exceptional after we overshifted to an anbalanced line for the second half. They did a lot of trapping with their tackles, and that fallback Mike Pergolizzi. Ill yards) was lulling us op the middle. The Wing-T gave as trouble, but our kids were firm." WAYNE VALLEY made no adjustments in the second half of its Group 3 triumph over Westwood Saturday, wben it rallied from a I- deficit to win, 21-C. Without stotback-line-backer John Drozjock (sprained knee liga ments), coach Fred Keil's game plan was "wait it out, wear 'em down." "We wanted to ran dives and pitches at them, and not make dumb mistakes,' says Keil, whose Indians (9-0) meet Northern Highlands in the sectional title game. "But we felt that since most of them go both ways, we could wear them down. And that's what we did. Three of the four fumbles they lost in the second half had a lot to do with fatigue. Wben you start tackling a -3, 225-pound fullback (Valley's Walt Foster, who had 122 yards 24 times, it's going to wear down those five guys they have playing both lines." NORTH BERGEN'S Vince Ascolese marveled at the way his undersized team routed Clifton in Group 4. They're a good bunch of talented kids," Ascolese says of his Bruins (9-0), "but still, I can't fathom that - 354, against a team that good." The key to stopping the Mustangs was the play of nose guard Joe Falato (5-7, 195), who went nose-to-nose with Clifton's M, 240- pound center Dave Szott as the Bruins held Clifton to two first downs. Other Bruins who stood tan were two-way tackle Bill Foley (5-9, 210) and guard-linebacker Jim Bianco (54, 190). A RIFT has developed between coaches Vic Paternostro of Pope John and Joe Lemon of DePauL Lennon says it stems from Paternos-tro's decision to go for a touchdown Saturday as time expired in Pope John's 21-7 Parochial B upset victory. Paternostro says it began when DePaul defenders tried to "rip my quarterback's ankle off" on the three previous plays, and he says he would have coached differently if that had not happened. The teams did not shake hands after the game, and the coaches give different reports on why that happened. Paternostro says his players were ready to line up wben he received "all kinds of abuse" from Lennon and several DePaul players; Lennon says that all he said was that going for the last touchdown "was not a very Christian thing to do."

By ulohfi OraiwiuMi Volleyball The Old Tappan girls volleyball team entered the season with five straight Northern Bergen Interscbolastic League titles, and it had knocked Ramapo out of the New Jersey State Interscbolastic Athletic Association tournament in the semifinals the past two years. But Ramapo took the league crown away this year, and the Raiders completed their best season ever by topping Old Tappan, 15-10, -15, 15-, in the NJSIAA Group 3 sectional final Saturday night at Fair Lawn High ScbooL "Old Tappan has been the top team around for quite a while, so it was fitting that we'd have to play them in the final," said Ramapo coach Chariene Heckman. "My players were rooting for Old Tappan against Tenafly in the semifinals so we'd have sort of a deciding match." Old Tappan and Ramapo split their two regular-season meetings. Jen Bloom sparked the Raiders with her net play in the three-game final Senior Karen Kerr and Vas Pappas, a junior, are the setters in Ramapo's 4-2 offense. Ingrid Loew-rigkreit, another junior, should be ready to take over for Bloom as the team's leading hitter next year. "I prefer the 4-2 because it's a lot simpler for the kids," said Heckman. "Wben you're not concentrating so much on where you have to be, you wind up with fewer mental mistakes. It's worked for us." HACKENSACK, a 12-15, 15-2, 15-5 winner over Fair Lawn in Group 4, is an early favorite to return to the sectional final again next year. Coach Frank Bernardo started five juniors and a sophomore in Saturday's final Hackensack already is among the top teams in the county, as evidenced by its first-place finish in the William Paterson volleyball tournament and its first-round sectional victory over Paramos. The Comets had lost to Paramus in the county final a few days earlier. Stacey Maat had 22 spikes and nine aces against Fair Lawn, and Missy Zweil did her one better, picking up 23 spikes and nine aces. Kir-sten Maillet, whom Bernardo classified as possibly toe best setter in Hackensack history, had 75 sets, nearly all of them on target SECAUCUS was the only repeat sectional winner. The Patriots topped Fort Lee, 14-16. 15-2, 15-11, to win the Group 2 title. The Bridgewomen fought back from a 9-3 deficit in the third game to tie the score at 9. Serena Provenzano sparked the Fort Lee comeback with strong net play, but the all-around efforts of Jeanine Castellano drove the Patriots back into the lead. Sophomore Sheila Ulrich hammered borne the winning spike EASTERN CHRISTIAN struck a blow for Passaic County volleyball by topping defending champion Park Ridge, 9-15, 15-10, 15-9, in the Group 1 final The Eagles, county champs in 1983, were led by Brenda Douma and Laura Golden, who had nine serves apiece, and Jill Hooger-hyde, who had six spikes. Patty Connors countered with seven serves and six spikes for Park Ridge (22-4). iHaUSSUHHHHHHMnBK Start T r Career ...
